Have you tuned in to E’s newest hit series Botched? Well, if you haven’t already, go set your DVR. At first, the program may seem like pure fun; it’s easy to laugh along with Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Terry Dubrow. However, the plastic surgery patients are real, and the surgeons touch on serious messages in each show. If you are considering any kind of cosmetic surgery, here are five important tips gathered from the episodes that can ensure you won’t become the next case on Botched.
- Never have any kind of injectable outside of a reputable cosmetic surgeon’s office.
Rajee (Season 2, Episode 1) had a concrete filler and tire sealer injected into her face, breasts, and buttocks; leaving her permanently disfigured.
- More isn’t always better, especially when it comes to boobs.
Alicia (Season 1, Episode 1) ended up with a painful, unsightly uni-boob; after an inexperienced surgeon took her large implants too far.
- Only see a doctor Board Certified in plastic surgery for a cosmetic procedure.
Myesha (Season 1, Episode 8) paid the bargain price of $150 in Mexico for facial rejuvenation, only to have permanent sagging and career-halting bags under her eyes.
- Be honest with your plastic surgeon; don’t risk poor results because you didn’t disclose information.
Body-builder Lauren Powers (Season 2, Episode 3) wanted to become more feminine; unfortunately, she did not disclose the fact that she takes steroids, which could significantly impact the results of her surgical procedure, and cancel her procedure.
- There is no such thing as the perfect body.
As Monique (Season 1, Episode 8) has learned the hard way, after over 200 cosmetic procedures, it is impossible to create an ideal physical appearance.
